In 1885 Bat decides to visit Leadville, Colorado and the Princess Anne mine. Bat was given a 15% interest in the mine for the right to use his name to raise money from investors to reopen it. As he approaches the mine an explosion occurs followed by the warning sound of a mine collapse. He watches as dead miners are carried from the mine including the brother of the foreman Jeremy French. Bat asks French why they continue to mine with unsafe conditions but French answers by asking Bat if he is happy with his return on investment. Bat soon learns the mine manager Augustus Ulbrecht wants the most ore with the least cost. Bat decides to convince the other owners to push for reform starting with Ann Eaton whose dad started the mine and owns one of the largest shares of the mine. The miners don't believe he wants to help and after another collapse, he finds himself trapped intentionally but by whom. Written by Anonymous
